There has been a recent trend in the online gaming industry involving mobile devices. Just like Facebook and Twitter, online gaming sites have begun to consider mobile devices at their disposal, and develop a ‘compact’ version of their software. Partypoker is among the online gaming sites that have just adopted this practice. Last December 2012, the people behind partypoker have released their mobile offering for Android, alongside with the announcement of the revamp of their monthly tournament guarantee to a staggering $15 million. The app is only compatible with smartphones and tablets that run in Android 2.1 or higher.
Android users are in for a treat with the partypoker app. With this app, they will be able to access both play money and real money games through their device. These apply to all of the app’s offerings, including Texas Hold’em matches. Those who are on the move should be connected to a 3G network to continue their gaming experience.
Another feature of the partypoker app is the well-celebrated FastForward Poker. It is a new addition in the app’s offerings that promises users faster gameplay as they now have the ability to have four times as many hands as the live kind of poker. With this speed poker feature, partypoker app users will have the option to fold instantly and be moved to the next table.
Just like its predecessor, the partypoker app comes with a community section as well. Poker enthusiasts can use this virtual lounge to connect with other members, and share information about their experience and how they can improve it. The app is available in multiple languages, including English, German, and French. The partypoker app is not available in Google Play, but it can be downloaded from their main site. Here are the instructions to complete the installation process:
To start off, enable non-market apps within the device’s settings. You can do that by going to “Settings”, then “Applications”. Check the tick box “Unknown sources. Allow installation of non-Market applications”. A warning window will be appearing, and tap “OK”.
Scan the QR code or go to the site of partypoker through the Android device that you are using to start the download. Create a new account or log in with your existing account details, and you’ll be participating in any of the app’s offerings in no time.
As the partypoker app is still in its beta version, withdrawals as well as deposits are not available as of yet. Android users are also expected to encounter situations involving connection problems and bugs during their app experience. The partypoker team suggests that, if these problems continue, it is best to report it to them directly, as soon as possible.
